Good to hear.
My first wife lost a three year battle to a malignant brain tumor 11 years ago.(I become very familiar with medical world real quick-sounds like you have too)
Glad your news is much better!
I have been re-married almost a year now, The verses below were made popular again in the 60's by the Byrds:
They are helpful in bad times and good.

Ecclesiastes 3:2-8
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

A time to give birth and a time to die;
A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
A time to kill and a time to heal;
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to weep and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn and a time to dance.
A time to throw stones and a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing.
A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;
A time to be silent and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate;
A time for war and a time for peace.

My sincerest condolences. Sounds all too much like GBM. My wife had surgery 3.5 years ago, and it just keeps on taking. Another 8-week MRI tomorrow, more blood tests next week and hopefully another chemotherapy infusion the following week.

Met my wife in 1970, a lot happened those 10 between years, and we got married in 1980. Four kids who may not yet fully realize that this thing is soon going to take their mother and at least three grandkids who will never really know her.

Everyone should have a treatment plan BEFORE it happens to them or someone close.
